My 10 month old has had a runny nose for the past 3 days, excessive drooling, slight fevers in the middle of the night, which I know are all signs of teething. But what concerns is the past two nights he keeps waking in a blood curdling scream, kicking his legs like he is in extreme pain. The only thing that has seemed to calm him down is a little dose of infant advil. Just wondering you mom's think it could be a sore throat or bug or just teething.

  • teething. he probably is in extreme pain. I just went through my 9 month old teething his top front two at the same time. he'd do the same thing. since they've broken through the gums he hasn't done it. :)

  • Those are also signs of an ear infection. Keep an eye out for ear pulling.

  • Yes definitely watch for the ear pulling, when babies have runny noses they are by nature "nose breathers" so it doesn't take long for an ear infection to start.
